Formatting response from Power Automate in virtual agent

Hi does anyone know how to format a response returned to the virtual agent?


In Flow I have JSON output that is parsed and I use the "value" from the parse JSON action in the virtual agent response action, however the format is one long JSON string.

[{“id”:“234sodoz-48ff-4ee9-werwe-1edwerewb8dd”,“Name”:“TestName”,“DateTime”:“2018-11-29T23:34:24Z”,“manufacturer”:“Microsoft Corporation”,“model”:“Virtual Machine”,“serialNumber”:“90294”,“operatingSystem”:“Windows”}]


I'd like the output for the response to be in a readable format and accommodate for multiple records.  Anyone have ideas?  Ideally I'd like a table, however create CSV and HTML actions in Power Automate don't show correctly in the response either.

Ok, after some testing I figured out how to make a table format.  In the append to string variable stack the values on top of one another, then add a space on top and bottom between each value.  At the very top add some dashes and do the same for the very bottom underneath the last value.  Works really well.


So it will look like this:












If you want you can add the title for each row next to the value if needed.


So Name: namevalue and so on.
